I seem to be having issues getting an internet connection through wi-fi on my new install. I've used older versions of Ubuntu in the past and not had any issues getting a connection.

Sometimes it'll say it's connected to my network, but I can't access any webpages or download anything via the software center. As soon as I click on the connection in the top dropdown menu, it informs me that I've been disconnected. If I leave it alone it'll say it's established a connection again, but in reality I still cannot access the internet.

I've tried restarting my modem and router, as well as deleting and recreating the connection. My computer has no problems connecting through its Windows installation. I don't really know where to start to solve the issue, as I am not familiar with Ubuntu or network issues.
